Ecoconsciousness in the Works of Select American Writers

Main Article Content

Dr. E. Esther Rosalind


American authors have shown a special interest in ecology right from the times of Transcendentalism. The transcendentalists especially are of the opinion that Divinity is revealed through Nature and when people communicate with Nature it’s a means of connecting with God. This idea was advocated by Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Robert Frost, Kate Chopin and Sarah Orne Jewett. These authors are sensitive to their environment and demonstrate ecoconsciousness through their works, which paved way for a distinct class of writing.
